The Gite last night was called “the Alchemist”. Someone puts signs up along the Chemin with wise words in French. It was also a wonderful place to stay. The artisan chef is also a master storyteller, and between he and his partner, managed to keep the English speakers up with the stories, all while serving up the food. A fine night.
We had a short 20 km walk today. I got lost once but other Pelerins set me straight. A day like today with 5 hours walking leaves me tired, but the recovery after shower is much quicker. I am at a large Gite tonight outside of a town with 3 names which I won’t write. We are definitely in Basque Country now. I don’t have a good photo of the Pyrenees today, but they’re looking quite impressive.
